Who wants to preserve family memories for those who follow in our footsteps?
As I reflect on this past year of my writing challenge, 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks, I have a sense of pride and a sense of accomplishment. For once this challenge ends, I will have 52+ stories about my family. Through this writing adventure, I have discovered so much about my ancestors and even a little about myself, and I really hate to see it end! So I have created a new writing challenge for 2018, but this time, I believe writers should also include more personal narratives to add their family history. To keep me moving forward on this journey, I have started a new writing challenge called My Tales. It would be fun to have family bloggers join in with this writing adventure. Who is with me?
Every month, I will place some new themes to write about to keep our family stories alive. In addition, I will include some personal ideas for personal narratives to include with our family tales. Each week, I will post a page to share your stories, and keep favorite memories alive for those who follow in our footsteps. To find information about this writing challenge, just check the sidebar category list, 1. My Tales on my home page.
One thing I have discovered is that I have found some new blogging friends who have offered support and encouragement as I have shared my family tales. So let’s keep our writing adventures alive as we share them others who enjoy sharing and preserving family stories and traditions.

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” ~ Alexander Graham Bell
A Creative Family History Journal
“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
